It’s brand new, well set out. Nice kitchen, good water pressure in the shower. Parking is a little awkward but everyone fits in.

It's very small. The bathroom door wouldn't even close!! Bed wasn't comfortable and was noisy with ever movement. But the electric blanket kept us warm.

Cheaper, Basic, Dated but Comfy Motel

Pros: Price, location
Cons: Cleanliness (cup in bathroom only)
Motel Room has everything you need for a short stay and things works satisfactorily. One bedside light not functioning - no problem. Comfy bed. Motel is on King's Highway but no noise problems. Only worrying issue was dirty plastic cup in bathroom in toothbrush fitting. Dead insect and dirt from a few weeks ago possibly.

Overnight stay for ski trip

Nice cheap and clean accommodation. Worked well to break up the trip from central coast to the ski fields.

Pay by the hour

Was more like a pay by the hour motel... luckily I wasn't there long enough for it to be a problem.

Queanbeyan Review

Location: Well positioned to centre of Queanbeyan and easy drive to ACT.
3 star lodging that basically fulfils this rating. Room was clean, neat and tidy. AC was adequate (coped with extreme heat at night). TV was marginal with aerial interference.
